With £40,236,142 in the bank so far Comic Relief has already made a stunning difference to thousands of people's lives across both the UK and Africa, yet still every little helps...
In one of the most thoughtful gestures I've seen in a long time multinational manufacturer of just about everything Asus has decided to not just throw a faceless cheque at the charity but put in a little effort.
Consequently it has come up with the 'Red (Nose Day Red) S6' – a one off version of the company's hit S6 leather series notebook and matched it up with customised red accessories and a presentation case. One off doesn't mean a few either, we're talking about the real deal only-one-ever. So how do you get your mitts on it?
In short: eBay. In an effort to raise as many readies as possible Asus will put the laptop up on the monstrous auction site on Saturday 31 March at 3pm. To find it simply search for 'Asus Red 6'. On the other hand, if you'd like to check out the machine in person before laying down your hard earned cash it will be situated in the Micro Anvika section of Harrods on the third floor. Here you can also place bids and – thanks to Micro Anvika's proxy bidding – no eBay account is required.
We always think a worthy cause is worth spreading so if we've just helped to push up the price of the Asus Red 6 by a few pounds then, for once, we're really rather pleased.
